Following the discovery of sherds of sugar moulds, etc, beneath development land in Dundee, considerable local research, both archaeological and historical, has been undertaken over the last few years into sugar refining in the city ...
"The industrial redwares are of 18th/19th-century date and appear to have been dumped from a sugar house in the near vicinity. There is a sugar house on record from 1767 to 1841 in Sugarhouse Wynd which lies some 160m to the NW of the site and these sherds may have been dumped from that operation."
A full report has been published as 'The Dundee Sugar House, Seagate, Dundee' by David Perry with contributions by Derek Hall and Richard Jones, in Tayside and Fife Archaeological Journal, vol 19-20 (2013-2014), pp103-18.
"In Dundee the operation of Sugar-refining is carried on upon a great scale."
